Ooh the rain, it woke me this morning, not cold but still and raining straight down. Feeling strong this morning after a good water exercise session yesterday, I figured out how to do pool pushups, and pull ups, too, don't know why it didn't oc... Read more

Feeling a bit despondent lately as my weight is moving in the wrong direction. I have been struggling a bit with a foot injury and over a period of time my exercise hasn't been as intense as it usually is, so I think I have been on a slippery sl... Read more

Yesterday was back to back work. At the end of the day, I both did and didn't want to go to the hot pool for my 2 hour session, I was beat. I went, but in the pool, meh! I didn't want to run. So I walked. I didn't feel like doing my usual routi... Read more

Had a great day yesterday. Slept in and so didn't make 8am Zumba. I still feel vaguely guilty about this. It was a lovely warm sunny day. We visited friends and went for a bush walk, and then to town where DH bought some magazines and I bought s... Read more

Here I sit sipping ginger, lemon & honey drink, my favorite for warding off the ills of winter. DH has a lurg, not sure if it is a cold or flu, everyone at work seems to be coming down with something including me, I have niggling headaches and o... Read more

I've started a walk 5k challenge to add exercise to my down days. I have some trepidation as my feet are still not quite right. But I figure I can do some of it in the pool if I run into trouble, because Even if it is not walking on the land, it... Read more

Yesterday instead of my usual 2 hour warm pool session I was in the water for only 90 minutes because I had to be home early. I still fitted in my hour of running, paying more than usual attention to my foot placement, because of my recent foot ... Read more

Finally my weight is trending down. Actually after being on a plateau for weeks it went up a bit, from which I have learned my lesson to be grateful for plateaus, now I know it could be worse! Then I started to lose and now I am at a lower weigh... Read more

My feet have been playing up quite a bit, now one hurts all the time, and over a month ago I decided to get new shoes. I looked around but didn't buy because I thought I should check with my podiatrist before I made the big purchase. Yesterday D... Read more

Dear blog, this blog is because I need to blog, not that I have much to say, or, actually not much to say that I want to hear. But I've been away and I am out of my routines and my foot hurts a bit and I am thinking about exercise but gee, it's... Read more

I had a great holiday and it is great to be back home. I plan to carry some of that relaxation into my daily life, though I am not entirely sure how it is going to play. Already I have stayed up late watching TV but that is because our bedroom i... Read more
Spark agenda

I see in my last blog I said I had no agenda for the weekend but actually, I do. I meant no SP agenda. When in fact I do, because one, I am taking a holiday, and two, I am at a workshop that involves lots of meditation. It's actually quite hard ... Read more
